Front seat won't fold down the release lever is not working

The resistance on the lever is nil, it feels as though the linkage to the folding mechanism is disconnected, but I can't see how to access the maechanism to investigate

The mechanism is burried deep inside the acctual seat. there will be an access fold which consists of a piece of plastic which is folded at the botom of the back of the seat which should untuck so to speak and allow you to access the back enough to see the offending clasp

Rear seat jammed release lever does not clear


Is this a fold-down rear seat? Is it jammed the the folded or open position? If folded, try putting some weight and pressure on the seat back while trying the release lever (having an 8-year old bounce on it would probably work well :-}). If it's jammed in the open position, have the same "assistant" bounce back and forth against the seat back while you attempt the release lever. If no 8-year old is readily available, have your spouse/significant other, friend (or enemy) perform the same actions as would the child. The latch may simply need some "persuasion". Good luck.

You can make it release by pulling up on the metal bracket where the cable attaches under the seat at the back in the middle.

2004 3rd row rear seat won't fold down using lever


Cable is broken or stretched. pick up the bottom seat and see the cable end if broken or slack from being stretched pull that cable and then the back should fold down. Ibelieve you will need to remove seat to repair the cable. the bottom seat when lifted pulls on a cable that releases the backs lock to fold down

I can't into my trunk there is something stuck therefore i need to fold down my rear seats and move it but i don't know how to fold them down I trie but i got nowhere


Be sure that your model has fold down rear seats...you should see the seperation around both rear seats...if equipped, the fold down release is located at the top corner of each rear seat...pull the lever up to release...if your model does not have the fold down option...you will need to remove the rear seat...remove the lower cushions first...look on the lower front of the seats for hold down bolts...second you will need to remove the top of the rear seat...hold down bolts are at the bottom of the top cushion...after removing the bolts (one each side) you need to push up on the cushion to remove...this will then allow access to the trunk...find the trunk latch and try to release by twisting the latch cable...Hope this helps...

2006 Ford Explorer: Back seat won't fold flat to create flat cargo area. It folds down but not flush.


Okay so im just going to start from the seat being upright in a normal riding position.

1. You need to fold the head rests first. Pull the black tab under both headrests. They should spring into a folded position.

2. pull the side seat lever (on the door side of the seat). This will fold the top/back support down to an angle.

3. There is one more lever on the backside of this seat. Its in plain sight on the angled portion of your seat. Lift the big plastic lever.

4. While keeping the handle lifted, grasp the back of the seat and pull it torwards the front of the car. The seat should come unlocked and roll forward and down more towards the floor. If you have a bunch of junk on the floor, it obviously wont work. clear the path and the seat will fold completely flat.

Also, your drivers seat and front passenger seat cannot be all the way back, they need to come forward some in order for the second row seats' head rests to clear and fold flat.

i dont think they were meant to fold down but you should be able to take them out to haul bigger items. some of the vans they make are made that way so that you have to remove the seats rather than fold them down

I am not posative but i believe that if you look under the seat and pull that cover out of the way a bit you will see the lever that cable pulls and you can move it by hand so you can fold the seat.
